Alex Curtis Memorial Trust (ACT) promotes awareness and good management of asthma for young people.
We give talks directly to school students, staff and parents on asthma and how to minimise its impact on the lives and education of young people.
We provide material showing how to cope with an acute asthma attack and information about asthma.
We seek to influence industry, political and professional organisations about better management of acute asthma; and to authorise the use of generic reliever inhalers in schools.

NEWS. We are participating in The Dragons’ Apprentice Challenge 2013. This unique CVS St Albans project has matched us with a team of 6th formers (the Apprentices) and a local business mentor (the Dragon!) to turn £100 into £1000 or more….. for us! We are delighted to be part of this and will benefit by raised awareness of our work plus the money raised has no strings attached so we can prioritise how it is used. The 6th formers gain a unique project to add to their CV plus experience of working in a business setting and the business mentors enjoy contributing in a very hands on way in their community. If you want to know more about it, please follow this link www.dragonsapprenticechallenge.com
The young paino protégé, Julian Trevelyan is to give a recital to raise funds and awareness for the trust.
On Thursday 1st March, the Mayor of St Albans, Counciillor Aislinn Lee, came along to a talk that the trust was giving at St Alban and St Stephen's Junior School in a move to support the trust.
The Mayor said, "It was an interesting and useful talk about what can be a debilitating condition. Peter gave practical tips on how to manage asthma and what to do if someone is suffering an attack."
Watch out for full press coverage of the event in next week's local press.
